Killeinagh Graveyard Project
On the 25th of February 2005 a committee was set up to organise improvement works at Killeinagh graveyard. The primary concern of the committee was the main entrance and road down to the graveyard which was in a very bad state. Having held talks with Clare County Council and having acquired an archaeological report from Mr. Michael Lynch plans were drawn up by Mr. John Moylan of Clare County Council.Plans included:
A huge amount of the initial work, namely digging out the western wall and bringing it up to foundation level, was done voluntarily by members of the local community. The stonework was carried out by John Carthy, Tom Barry and John Frawley who were employed by the Rural Resource Scheme on a week-on-week-off basis. The roadwork was done voluntarily by members of the committee. After two years this work is now complete  and the flower beds put the finishing touches to the project.
All this work could not have been done without your help and contribution. People gave their time, machinery, expertise, etc. voluntarily and for this we are very grateful.
FÁS has kindly provided us with a part time caretaker for grass cutting / strimming duties.
Reiligh Cill Eidhneach, as the plaque reads on the entrance wall, is now a graveyard we can all be proud of. Graveyards are an important part of our archaeological heritage and should accordingly be treated with respect.
